Over $3100 across 11 years for me. I installed steam when it first came out (2004?) but I didn't like it back then. I think I waited until the id Anthology came out to fully install/use it.

This number doesn't seem that bad until I realized that I've only bought maybe a dozen games in the past few years on steam. The majority of these purchases were probably done in a 6-8 year period. I'd wager that generally I bought a game a month for quite a while until about 2 years I stopped finding game that met my old geezer's idea of worth my money. (get off my lawn)

6 years after I created my account would have been 2012 which is fairly close to the last time I bought a lot of games. Ends up being something like $30-$40 a month. Yea... glad I don't do that anymore.

I love Steam as a platform but the software is in DIRE need of modernization. I don't mean updates and bandaids either. It needs a complete overhaul. My other huge gripe is all the SHIT software on Steam these days. I'm not saying Valve needs to review every single title under the sun, but something has to be done. Allowing all these early access games means 90% never finish and you're left with paying for games that are literally never "complete" in any sense of the word. I realize a lot of that is on us, the gamers, who buy all these shit games supporting these methods. However, there needs to be systems in place to prevent so many early access games from never being completed. They grab their EA money and never push out another update.

Coming in 2020!

Nearly 2 years after you made this comment and it's confirmed that the likely date is in fact 2020!

I've been hearing about this game for so many years. Maybe I should try it...

Blue, I've been a registered member for over 16 years now. I was a lurker before that but never registered. I saw your site a few times during the time it was Blue's Quake Rag but never really followed you. Your site has been my homepage for 15+ years.

It's hard to believe you've been around this long. It's hard to believe I've been coming to a single website this long as well. I hope your format never changes! This site has been through some hard times. I remember the UGO debacle. The first time ads started taking over your entire screen and your tireless efforts to have meaningful ads.

To this day, your site is the only site that is whitelisted in my adblocker. Here's to another 20 years!

Hi Blue!

First post - I've been lurking since '96!

It's a great night for GOT fans. Enjoy!

Blues news has been my homepage for upwards of 17 years now!

Ok... I seemed to have fixed it. I had to reselect the "theme" from the left bar. I guess it forgot the settings somehow? I don't know...

I'm having trying to post this, hopefully it works. Blue, I am not sure if this an issue on my end but the CSS no longer loads on your site in Chrome.

I've tried everything from refreshing cache to rebooting and everything in between. It also seems like this is the only site having an issue. All other sites work fine.

Leonard Nimoy has died aged 83. As a very infrequent Star Trek viewer, he was my favourite.

May he live long and prosper wherever he went! \\//

Saw this dress on Reddit. Turns out, the dress is literally blue/black and the photo is severely overexposed and color shifted. I personally see it as bluish-white/gold in the original photo but the links below provide more info:

The guy who knows nothing about football is doing quite well! People at work are asking for my advice picking teams for the pool. They think I am lying when I tell them to just pick their favorite team name or mascot.

Me too! (I'm on there as Whisperfang) I know how football is played and know most if not all of the rules, but I almost NEVER keep up with teams. Sports don't really interest me. As I said in an OotB a few days ago, I picked the only two I know anything about and then for the rest of the games I picked the underdogs.

Ok, so our Pick'em group. I'm ranked #2 and while I didn't choose randomly, I might as well have! I picked two teams that I know, and the rest of the matchups, i simply picked the underdog. How the hell do I get to be rank #2? Even in ESPN total standings I'm ranked 2290ish out of over a million signups. I just don't get it...

I don't really follow sports all that much but this year I decided to do some pigskin pick'ems with you guys. I know almost nothing about the teams so I was picking blindly pretty much. I am not sure how I got to the 75% by doing that...

Looks like Falcons winning will upset a LOT of picks...

I'm not getting this because it's b/w. If I could change it, I'd probably get it.

I enjoyed the hell out of it. It's meant to be a co-op game. I played with a friend and we had a freaking blast. I had no qualms about paying $50 for the epic pack.

Well that was a rather boring read. Newell's answers are (mostly) botlike. Got the jive that he would rather be doing anything else with his time...

That's basically every AMA on reddit, at least with a "known" person.

You obviously missed Lil' Jon's AMA and Snoop Lion's too.

Blue,

I am not sure if you'll see this but I just got a huge takeover ad from your site. It replaced your content and told me I'd be re-directed in 30 seconds. Adblock caught the content replacement because it wasn't ON your page (blues news is in my whitelist) so all I got was a white page with a timer.

@Efflixi

1. Some ads are dynamic based on your web history, I think although some are static. But you might be getting an ad no one else is based on your history. I've not seen that problem on the site.

2. Would help if you provided more info: OS ver, browser ver, mem amt, proc type & speed, other apps open simultaneously, etc.

3. What happens in Firefox? IE? Opera? Same behavior?

Windows 7

Core i7 2600k @ 4.4GHz
Usually no other apps open
I only use Chrome, no other browsers
